The Heartbreak and The Humor of Penny And Sparrow

    When we released our session with Penny & Sparrow a few weeks back, we swore to you that Andy Baxter and Kyle Jahnke weren't just a couple of sad sacks, pedaling devastating acoustic music that pretty much rips the heart right out of the chest. They do all of that, by the way. But Andy and Kyle happen to be two of the most thoughtful and hilarious fellows we've ever encountered.

    The band recently released their stunning new album, Let A Lover Drown You, which was produced by ex-Civil Wars singer John Paul White and features other production work from the Alabama Shakes' Ben Tanner. It's an album that was meticulously cared for over the course of its creation. "Every single lyric, note, and production element was considered for a long time," Andy told our crew. "There was no nervous creation. All of it was based on joy...based on this is the record we would want to listen to. This is the record we would want to hear."

    In conversation, the duo take us through their roots as a duo at the University of Texas, their creative process, the lyrical intent of their music, and the overall feel of the album ("just a bunch of bangers...EDM"). They reference T.S. Elliot, tell the tale of the unfortunate blogger they had to kill for the name Penny & Sparrow, proclaim their mutual physical attraction for each other, and hint at possibly/maybe creeping on the elusive J.P. White.
